The Full Trailer for CAPTAIN AMERICA and Why Cap Will Kick THOR’s Ass
It’s here, my friends: the first full trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger.
And now that you’ve basked in the glow of that over-sized plate of Awesome Sauce, let us tell you something: Anyone—we’re looking at you, Ryan Connolly of Film State—who still thinks that Captain America will pale in comparison to Thor is out of their freaking skulls.
We’re also going to go out on a limb and say that, while we think Captain America will be blockbuster financially (especially here in the U.S., given the fact that the lead character’s costume is our gosh-darned flag), we think that Thor will be a colossal bomb. It won’t be Mars Needs Moms bad, but I’m not sure that the general public has any idea who Thor is, and, more importantly, I don’t think they have any idea why they should care.
Captain America, however? I mean, duh, right? If going to a summer movie is all about wish fulfillment—and it is, trust us—then this should kick ass at the box office. Isn’t it every American’s wish right now that we had a superhero of our own to go out and clean up all of our government’s messes?
Yep, I thought so.
